Big things are happening at Disney’s Hollywood Studios behind this park’s many, many construction walls. And while we can't wait to check out Toy Story Land in 2018 and Star Wars Land in 2019, some other changes are happening right now inside the park that visitors should know about. From the imminent opening of a new land to the addition of new Holiday entertainment in November, here's everything going on right now at Disney's Hollywood Studios:

1. Grand Avenue set to open very soon

One of the more interesting side-effects of Walt Disney World's preparations for Hurricane Irma was the tearing down of scrims and temporary construction walls around the Grand Avenue area of Disney's Hollywood Studios. Guests who went to this park in the days leading up to the hurricane were able to get their first look inside at the new layout of this area, and even the new Baseline Tap House watering hole.

And though Disney has yet to announce an official opening date for this new area, based on what we've seen it looks like this area is almost ready for guests, and we'd be very surprised if Disney doesn't officially open Grand Avenue before the end of next month.   

2. Coco preview comes to Walt Disney Presents 

Beginning on November 3, Disney's Hollywood Studios will play host to a preview for Pixar's latest film Coco inside the theater in the new Walt Disney Presents. (Formerly One Man’s Dream) attraction. In addition to the special sneak peek, guests will also be able to view character sculptures and artwork from the production that will be on display inside this reimagined space. 

3. For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration to get new addition for the holidays

Also beginning in November,  For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration at the Hyperion Theater will get a new addition as Anna, Elsa and Kristoff welcome fan favorite character Olaf to this popular show. In addition all-new songs from Disney’s new animated short “Olaf’s Frozen Adventure.” will also be added to this show, for the holiday season.
